In "Understanding the Old Testament" the essentials of the background and context of the Old Testament and Apocrypha are set out as concisely as possible to enable the reader to understand the meaning and significance of much that can only be appreciated fully with the help of this background material. The geographical setting, the prehistory, the social and political history, as well as the story of the ideas which grew in this context are all described. The account of the growth of the Old Testament and Apocrypha from the literary point of view is told in the companion volume, "The Making of the Old Testament."
